eos 70d won't pair with iphone5

I've downloaded the EOS Remote app to my iphone5.  I've followed the EOS instructions to Enable WiFi on the EOS 70D.  My iphone doesn't find the EOS SSID.


Has anyone run into this?  What did you do to solve it?

Hi polishknight!


Thanks for the post.


You must complete the setup procedure in-camera in order to be able to connect to it.


  1. Press MENU.
  2. Select the [Setup #3] tab.
  3. Select [Wi-Fi Function].
  4. Select [Camera Access Point Mode].
  5. Select [Easy Connection].
  6. Open the Wi-Fi setting on your iPhone and search for the camera's SSID, then connect to it.

When the camera is ready to be connected to, a screen will stay on with the SSID and excryption key displayed.  Do not cancel out of this screen or the process will need to be started over again.


If this is a time sensitive-matter, additional support options are available at Contact Us.

Thanks Mike!  Works like a charm.   Really cool to see the contents of the viewfinder on my iphone screen.
